Tents, Stoves, Snowshoes, Sleds, Tools, Skills, Ice & Safety. Lodge-Based In New Hampshire.
This course is based on the expedition prep program we teach at the beginning of our 12-day Boreal Snowshoe Expedition. It is designed to get participants up to speed on core skills so they can be a productive member of a remote, unsupported expedition.
Spend a weekend learning traditional northern forest skills while staying on-site in our modern, comfortable lodge.
